...in books

 
Showcase Sunday is weekly meme hosted by Vicky at Books, Biscuits & Tea which was inspired by In My Mailbox from Kristie at The Story Siren.
It is a possibility for us to show what amazing books we got during the week. 

The weather in Vienna started to get really fall-like this week. One day it was sunny and warm and the next day it was cloudy, cold or foggy. So I bought some books that kind of resemble a theme. 

The Future of Us by Jay Asher and Caroline Mackler

Kiss & Blog by Alyson Noel

The Land of Stories - The Wishing Spell by Chris Colfer

With Love at Christmas by Carole Matthews

Christmas at the Cupcake Café by Jenny Colgan
 
This week was my Blogoversary Week - my little Blog turned one year on Tuesday and I celebrated with guest posts from five awesome bloggers. You find an overview of this week's posts here. I am also giving away a book of your choice up to $15 from Book Depo. You can enter it until November 11th. The winner will be announced on the blog and via Twitter (follow me here).

    1. I had it on my wishlist since Dani from Pen to Paper said she loved it. Started reading The Land of Stories yesterday evening - great book and I totally forgot that I had an enormous headache :)
      Those Winter/Christmassy needed to come with me - fog always makes me think about Christmas

  4. Kiss and Blog sounds so messed up. It won't stop me from reading it though! It premise reminds me of Gossip Girl (even though I haven' read the books) though a little more lighthearted. Great haul!

    Here's my Sunday Showcase. Happy Sunday!

  9. I have been wanting With Love at Christmas since the moment I read about it! It's not being published in the USA, though. Sad! What a great haul you got this week! And thanks again for letting me participate in your blogversary!
